A WORD FROM OUR CLIENTS

"We have made significant steps forward in improving our day case service. This has been achieved through the implementation of lean techniques and the involvement of patients, staff, surgeons and anaesthetists all working together to implement their ideas. We have now re-designed the processes so that they flow which ensures that patients are seen much quicker through the system and have an overall better experience. The trust has also benefitted from being able to treat considerably more patients without the need for any major investment or recruitment of more staff."

Paul Hetherington, Director of Performance and Service Improvement, Royal Liverpool Children’s NHS Trust
